For what its worth - yes - Python is a barrier to entry for me 
personally but I kind of like that.  It's my perfect excuse for not 
submitting patches and provides me with a good separation of me as tool 
user versus developer (something I appreciate given the amount of stuff 
I'm already committed to).

On the other hand - a java variant of Gump would be interesting in that 
I could envisage closer integration between things like magic and gump 
itself.  It would also be a lot of fun to play around with gump plugins 
- things that lavage the big interconnected picture - but I'm sure this 
is possible with Python gump also.


Cheers, Steve.
